October 10, 2019 – The Art of Engaging Employers With Janet Estervig From Attainment Company

Do you want to refine your approach when engaging employers? Are you looking to increase the number of people you help find jobs? If you answered YES then this training is for YOU!

This training will offer skills and techniques to build relationships with the business community and focus on a sales approach to develop professional connections. Remember you have two customers when it comes to job development: the job seeker and the employer. Understanding the power of networking and speaking the employer’s language can assist you to make meaningful, long-term connections that meet the needs of both employers and people you are serving. Learn how to inventory your communities, analyze labor market data, market your services, understand the lean business model and develop professional business proposals. The better your job match, the more successful your job placements. Learn how to match the person’s job interests and skills with businesses that can benefit from this untapped labor pool to meet their workforce needs.
